I’ve been telling myself to go to the gym for years but never did (because I’m generally lazy) until the beginning of last month where I decided, change is needed. The problem is my metabolism is extremely high so anything I consume I will burn off real quick. I’m guessing my daily calories are around 1500-2000 a day.
so to actually gain muscle and weight, I have to double the amount of calories I eat daily, otherwise all that exercise is just not doing much. Which now means anything around 4000 is fine and my 3 meal a day becomes 6 meals a day. I also need a lot of protein so I cut out all the unnecessary carbs and replace that with even more protein.
Eating chicken everyday becomes very boring but to make it less excruciating I mix up a lot of seasonings.
One thing I realized also was that my entire life of consuming stuff like crisps, rice, spaghetti that were made up of carbs were the reason why I would also feel full after a meal. After eating with my new meal plan I started to get hungry real fast (within an hour or 2) even though those meals were pretty big.
Lets see how this goes for the rest of this year
